Well done to North Shore, again retaining the Jenkins Trophy. But we are getting better ... Thank 
goodness for our Juniors! We breed them young, we breed them tough at Howick-Pakuranga. Some very 
interesting games, but the top board stood out, between Martin Dreyer and Ralph Hart. It started 
out as a Queens Gambit Accepted, then turned Slav(ish), then Semi-Slav(ish), then looked like a 
Sicilian Najdorf with possible tactics on e6, b5 and d5. Except the poor Slav Bishop was stranded 
on h5, but a Sicilian type position demanded that it be somewhere guarding the Queenside. The 
White pawn was on e3 instead of e4, but Ralph Hart didn't seem to mind, and obviously saw the 
similarities in the different positions. Confused? Click "Games", play through the game and you 
will see. This is one of those games where you say "Where on earth did I go wrong?" After 6.Bg5?! 
Black actually has the better position =+(0.29) Depth 16. White may appear to look good on the 
board, but Mr Fritz says Black is definitely better. So, what happened? All games are also posted 
as a "pgn" file.

Here is what happened in the final "A" Grade Interclub match vs Papatoetoe, Sunday 29th June. 
Martin Dreyer and Bob Gibbons agreed a draw after 10 moves. Craig Blaxall beat Ed Tanoi after Ed 
sac'ed the exchange and didn't choose the best follow up. Richard Taylor managed to beat Chris Dale 
in a complex tactical duel. Paul Morten lost to Philip Makkattu when he blundered his Queen. 
Tony Booth lost a piece in the opening to Phillip Logo and the game soon followed. Peter Morten 
had a cracker of a position against Hans Gao, but the senior member of the Morten clan was mated 
on his back rank. So the final score was Howick-Pakuranga 2.5 vs Papatoetoe 3.5. Review by 
Craig Blaxall. See "Games" for pgn file.

The result of our Interclub match vs North Shore ended with the North Shore winning 4.5 - 1.5. On 
board 1 Dreyer and Garbett agreed a draw after 8 moves. On board 2 Craig Blaxall and Mark Le Brocq 
drew after fighting it out to a drawn rook and pawn ending without either side getting much of an 
advantage. Board 3 saw Richard Taylor play a complicated game vs Jeffrey McCrone in which Taylor 
had good chances, but he took a poisoned pawn and lost the game. Paul Morten was under pressure 
from Peter Stuart almost from the word go and lost a bishop ending a pawn down. Tony Booth lost a 
piece and the game to Fuatai Fuatai, who was playing for North Shore. Edward Huang's game vs 
Helen Milligan was the last game finished and ended in draw in an even position. Review by 
Craig Blaxall. See "Games" for pgn file.

Here is what happened in the Interclub. Our top board Martin Dreyer drew with Bob Smith because 
after a tactical duel Martin Dreyer could force a perpetual check. On board 2 Paul Spiller drew 
with Viv Smith. They agreed a draw with plenty of play left because Spiller was running low on 
time, with about 2 minutes left. On board 3 Craig Blaxall's opponent, John O'Connor, had Craig's 
King in a mating net but managed to mate O'Connor's king first! Richard Taylor lost to his 
opponent after overlooking a tactic. Tony Booth beat Nicole Tsoi. Edward Huang's game was the 
first finished, he thrashed his opponent. So over all we won against Waitakere 4:2. Review by 
Craig Blaxall. See "Games" for pgn file.
